    In 1985 he launched his men’s collections, both classic and casual wear, exhibiting it for many years at Pitti Uomo in Florence.
    All family is working in the company: the wife is taking care of production, one daughter is charged with administration; the other daughter is helping the father in designing and the son is a marketing manager.
    The company has signed, mainly in the Far East, several consultancy agreements and licenses concerning textiles and fashion collections, including accessories.
    Their talented designers give also consultancy assistance to create fashion collections with private labels in the world: for example, some Airlines Uniforms were designed by them.

    They are looking for:
    - distributors of original collections and license agreements especially in Japan and Korea
